Historical note

According to former University Archivist Howard Williams, "student interest in music easily won encouragement from the faculty and Executive Committee" at Hamilton Literary and Theological Institution, as "a knowledge of sacred music bore a close relationship to ministerial education," the school's original mission. Student musical groups existed as early as the 1830s, with the Sacred Music Society appearing by 1837.
